Fascinating. Exactly what audience was this one targeting? I cannot believe that the cart release of FS2 was so impressive that Atari deemed another complicated flying simulator to be a priority release...
Those games seemed to keep coming out on Atari systems in the second half of the 1980s. And honestly, I hated them
Flight Simulator II, Super Huey, Ace Of Aces, Tomcat: The F-14 Fighter Simulator, F18 Hornet etc etc etc
They looked cool in many cases, but so complicated to play. I remember an XEGS ad Atari had with a little kid so excited to play Flight Simulator II and thought "As If"?!!!
